Time is running out for legislators in Montpelier to get bills passed before the end of the current session.

Earlier this week on Vermont Edition, we heard what's happening in the Vermont House as this legislative session nears an end. Now, Senate President Pro Tem Tim Ashe joins us to provide an update on what movement we'll see in the Senate in the session's waning days.

Sen. Ashe discusses what's happening on key pieces of legislation, including raising the minimum wage, paid family leave, a tax-and-regulate marijuana bill and a long-term funding source for water quality projects.
